The tradition of the Divine Feminine offers a vast vision and wide-ranging potential application for critical, contemporary, eco-social challenges.

We will explore the traditions, texts, and teachings of this rare theological path of the Divine Feminine, which still remains globally extant as a major branch of Hindu spiritual life.

The tradition of Shakti/Mahādevī offers a multidimensional theological ethos that integrates transcendence and immanence, the masculine and feminine, life and liberation, dynamic creativity and contemplative tranquility, and the intuitive and empirical dimensions of experience.

What our Students

are Saying...

"I have studied through many established and well renowned yoga platforms, both academic and traditional based ones! This was one of the best workshops I ever attended not least because it was a praxis based one! Rameshji got the balance between scholarly analysis and traditionally based transmission just right and therefore was very engaging! This is the way forward for yoga platforms! We don’t necessarily just want to absorb knowledge but to know how to implement it in our everyday lives through practice! Rameshji was able to deliver this splendidly and I hope he is invited back to do more!" – Vishal Nehra

A recent yoga workshop student says:

"This program has provided more than any of us could have imagined. We have learned from one another, shown our vulnerability, and provided a brave space for our evolution."

A student reflecting on our faculty says:

"Every faculty member was incredibly knowledgable on their subject matter but even more so, passionate about sharing that knowledge and overwhelmingly dedicated to ensuring comprehension on the behalf of the students."

"I really appreciated being exposed to so many of the different perspectives of Yoga Philosophy – Samkhya, Vedanta, Tantra, Tibetan Buddhism, Goddess traditions. It’s wonderful to learn from teachers who so clearly love their subject. I really appreciated the support from the helpdesk team."
